Smith a jack of all trades for Bills
The last three weeks of OTA workouts were voluntary for the Bills. Next week it becomes mandatory with mini-camp beginning on Tuesday.
One player who was utilized in a variety of ways during OTA's was Brad Smith. The 28-year-old is listed as a quarterback and wide receiver on the Bills preseason roster.
The club brought Smith in as a free agent before last season because of his versatility on offense and special teams. Head coach Chan Gailey says there's a definite plan in place to further use those talents for the upcoming season.
"He'll be the third quarterback," Gailey said. "He’s got to have enough quarterback knowledge to get you out of a game. He’s a very good special team’s player, lines up and does that. He can play receiver and help us there. There are a lot of things. We’ve yet to put in a Wildcat which we’ll do so he’ll do that."
"The way I look at it is wherever I’m needed I don’t get frustrated about things like that," Smith said. "I’m still playing football. I’m still on the field having an opportunity to make plays. Of course at one point you want to be able to lock in and focus on one thing. Right now this is the plan and I’m going to execute it the best of my ability."
